, polls close early, 13 electoral votes, 48/47, president obama on top. state of florida, two-point lead for president obama. the state of ohio, most people have seen as the hinge point of this election, president obama's up 51/45. let's look at where the battleground states stand. if you average polls taken on the real clear politics website, of the nine battle ground states romney is only leading in the average of those polls in the two of them, north carolina and florida. the other states, president obama's got a lead. i'm talking about iowa, colorado, new hampshire, ohio, nevada, all states where president obama's doing very well. at least as competitive with romney. if mitt romney wins the states in his base, plus the two where he's leading, he only gets to 235 electoral votes, he needs many more to get elected. president obama would have many more, 303. so what mitt romney's got to do is figure a way to take some of those states away from the president. virginia, florida, ohio, colorado, iowa. that's where the election's going to be decided. mitt romney easily got a hill to climb t

legion and get to 270 electoral votes? give mitt romney florida, virginia, north carolina, colorado. his shortest path is to win those states. he would win a majority of the nine swing states and that gets him to 275, 263 for barack obama. he also needs for that scenario to win the state of ohio. tyler mentioned the cleveland airport today. what -- now, let's go back to this map again, put the swing states again in yellow and say, what is barack obama's shortest path? he just needs to win three of the nine swing states, those three, wisconsin, paul ryan's home state, ohio, the state we have just been talking about and also nevada, big harry reid's home state, the senate leader, big union vote, big hispanic vote there. if he gets those three things, barack obama gets to 271 electoral votes and wins, tyler. >> but not any three of those nine states? >> specifically those three. >> specifically those three. say it again, ohio, nevada -- >> ohio, wisconsin, nevada. if barack obama gets those three, can win every other swing state -- >> do the polls tell us that he is ahead in those three? >>

about florida with 29 electoral votes, and north carolina with 15. you add those together to the base states that mitt romney has. that only makes 235 electoral votes. president obama with 303. that doesn't mean mitt romney cannot win. he's very close in some other states. in colorado, for example, in new hampshire, he -- but he's going to have to make up a lot of ground in a lot of places to get there and the last swing state polls we showed showed six. point lead in ohio. two-point lead for the president in florida. one-point lead in virginia. big hill for mitt romney to claim clitomorrow night. >>> let's go to the finance.yahoo.com poll. the aftermath from sandy. do you think the pace of the recovery will help or hurt either candidate? go to vote at finance.yahoo.com. josh, do you think at this point the voters especially in our north carolina of the woods will use this storm as an issue as they cast their ballots or not? >> it is certainly going to be a matter of consequence but the real important question here is turnout. how many voters are actually going to come out. what we've

the opportunity for a boost since the government rebuilt southern florida after hurricane andrew in 1992. a reconstruction so huge, it moved the country's entire gdp needle just when we needed it, after right a nasty recession. and now that we've assessed the damage, or we're trying to at least, i'll have to tell you one thing. i think this looks like a possible replay of that hugely bullish. right after a nastier recession. you couldn't tell that today to. ford with terrific numbers because they're connecting with the building materials industry. those stocks performed best today with the ones that took matters into their own hands. we spoke to queen harbors after it bought safety queen. to diversify away from the oil and gas business. queen harbors may have been up huge anyway, simply because, well, it's queens harbors. precisely what sandy ordered. buyers love the acquisition. $8.91. 18% gain for the good guys. tonight we're going to speak with two other companies that want to make you money. just in the last couple days. we'll hear from eaton. it will soon close on its acquisition of

and it will develop across the south. of course, florida is the big deal here. you can see with our developing storm off the carolina coast we're expecting showers. and thunderstorms over florida. plus we may even see a little bit more rain than what we have here across southern virginia, north carolina, especially later on in the day. this is going to make a fast transition up the east coast, as we get in towards wednesday. temperatures won't be incredibly cold in the south. as a matter of fact, 50s, 60s, 70s, whether you're in the rain or not will be even slate. here's the timing on wednesday, getting into more of the storm because really tuesday's issues are going to be virginia and florida in terms of how the weather's going to impact. but florida, of course, will be out of that on wednesday. but virginia, you'll be in this. parts of new jersey. notice here, we will bring all this rain, all the way up into new england as well. and this will be heavy wind-swept rain. those areas trying to get power back on may have to deal with rain. one of the new things we're looking at here with these models i

later in the program. >> ohio, colorado, florida, those are the three, i think. >> i bet a lot of global investors are googling the u.s. state map this morning. >>> there is a plan known as the fiscal cliff and automatically triggered $600 billion of tax hikes and spending cuts which would send the u.s. into a recession. >> in this animation, eamon javers has explained the fiscal cliff and gives a couple scenarios for avoiding it. >> the u.s. is barreling towards the fiscal cliff, that's when come on on 2013, mandatory budget cuts and tax increases kick into reduce the deficit by $560 billion. the map drawn by congress leads to automatic cuts next year of $27 billion each in defense and nondefense spending and another $12 billion in cuts to medicare. but here's what lowers the deficit most. higher taxes. all the bush tax cuts go away and a 2% payroll tax comes back. all this coming at once would put the economy in a recession. congress and the president could still take an off-ramp and avoid the cliff, but that would mean tough compromises to raise taxes or lower spending. the other alte
margins in florida, virginia, colorado and ohio. >> governor romney has been having a tough time here in ohio because everybody knows he was against saving the auto industry. you don't scare people just to scare up some votes. >> i can't wait for us to get started. he's hoping we'll settle. americans don't settle. we build, we aspire, we dream, we listen to that voice that says we can do better. >> john harwood will join us with more. and then we'll focus on pot ticks with jack welch. romney campaign adviser senator rob portman and roger altman. so obviously a full lineup to get through all of this. andrew and joe, back over to you. >> let's check on the markets this morning. futures are indicated lower. as i've been pointing out for a while, there is a labor day indicator that jim stack and others have pointed to. and 25 out of 28 times, if the dow jones industrial average was below where it was the friday before labor day, the incumbent loses. and that number 13, 091 and the dow closed at 13,093. so two points above. >> do you think it was sandy? >> i don't know what it was. turned
projected off to the northeast of minneapolis. we'll take you a little bit further south, of course florida one of our swing states. and getting messier by the minute across sections of north florida and you can clearly see that that rainfall will make impacts for many of you across sections of the southeast including georgia and into the carolinas. some showery weather also for those of you in the northwest. in terms of tracking the storm system, the nor'easter that we've been talking about, this has clearly been on everyone's mind and we know how important it is to folks who want to get the latest details. once that storm system which is bringing the rain that we just showed you across the southeast begins to lift upward, we are anticipating those impacts to begin wednesday into thursday. and then thursday into thursday night, we will see some wet and wintry weather continuing, but the latest model runs are trending the system a little bit further offshore. back to you. >> thanks, danielle. it is now a sprint to the white house this morning. investors are waiting for a level of uncertaint
. obama's going to visit colorado, iowa, wisconsin, ohio, virginia, new hampshire, and florida. and an almost identical tour for romney excepts he swaps florida in favor of, get this, pennsylvania. very interesting. now you're going to be looking, there it is, live pictures of westchester, ohio, where a mitt romney rally is under way. tens of thousands there, and lines to come into the rally stretch out for six blocks. this is interesting. does team romney see an opening there? let's talk here now is democratic strategist robert shrum, columnist for "the daily beast" and ed rogers, republican strategist and former bush 41 deputy assistant. gentlemen, welcome back. >> good to be here. >> i want to begin with this thought. not the jobs thing. the jobs thing is too inconclusive. what is so interesting is the aftermath, the immediate aftermath of the hurricane has turned out to be far worse, difficult. people die. gasoline lines. 1970 style stuff. somebody has to bear the blame for that even though it may be unfair. people are in an ugly mood about the aftermath of this storm, bob
a lead in the real clear politics average of polls. that's north carolina and florida. all the others, iowa, colorado, new hampshire, ohio, the rest of that set of battle ground states are all leading for obama. now, many of them are close, but if mitt romney only carries florida and north carolina among those battleground states, he's only 235 electoral votes. what he has to do is put together in this final sprint victories in states like virginia, like in ohio, like wisconsin, like colorado. that's the way he could get to 270 electoral votes. we'll see whether the two candidates turn out machines produce the way they have hoped they will. and i talked to someone in the romney campaign today who said the polls have simply not captured the republican intensity. we'll find out tomorrow whether that intensity is actually superior to the democrats. >>. >> thank you. candidates battling it out into the final hour, for sure. what is wall street expecting to see from president romney versus candidate romney? will he be harder on china? a lot of questions. >> mike satolli from yahoo! finance
raise the price but it's illusory. you just have fewer shares. tyler in florida. >> caller: jim i'm going to give you a south florida booyah. >> i'll take that. i need to go there now always >> caller: sun is shining. actually it's overcast. but quick question for you. when you talk about the economy really booting off again it seems like you talk about it in terms of consuming and not producing. i'm thinking from the way i think about it you need something to be produced before it's consumed. i'm wondering why in terms of a growing economy you talk about consumption instead of production. that's what it seems like to me. >> i do. because in order to be able to raise price you need demand. if there's a shortage of supply, sure, that can mean something. but not if there's no demand, right? if you have a shortage of a supply at some product nobody likes you can't raise price. it doesn't mean anything. that's why we focus on demand on the show. a company that's got their earnings stars before you buy it. use the eps to figure out the company's growth rate and take it from there. "mad
decisive. florida remains a toss-up. clearly not going to make a difference to the overall outcome. 270, that was the number to reesm we knew once we started to get the results from ohio, that it was going in barack obama's way decisively. yes, 303 to barack obama 206 to mitt romney. >> but the race for the white house wasn't the only major contest as control of congress was also up for grabs. the democrats held on to the senate picking up two additional seats in massachusetts, where elizabeth warren beat the incumbent scott brown. in indiana, congressman joe donnelly beat the controversial richard mourdock. congress remains divides republicans maintain their control over the house of representatives. romney's running mate paul ryan won his re-election campaign for his house seat. >> joining us for more analysis is ron freeman. ron, good morning. >> good morning, kelly. >> ron, what's your initial reaction here to the outcome? what's the biggest impact this is going to have on policy? >> i think the biggest impact it will have on policy is we have a president we know well. we know what

"mad money" will be right back. >>> coming up -- power up? >> the devastation left in the wake of sandy is a stark reminder of just how vulnerable our critical infrastructure is. as this crucial backbone is rethought and rebuilt, cramer looks at one stock that seems to be in a powerful position. could it recharge your portfolio? and later -- >> house of pleasure. >> pending home sales rose to a five-year high today. which stock should you move into, as the fou
and maybe florida depends on the poll. i urge everyone to go out and vote in new jersey. very difficult. largest polling place in our town closed. no power. people have to recognize that the adversity of a lot of people trying to vote today shows you that democracy is trying to be at work. not as easy as you thought. >> i have always said voting is messy. we do it better than just about anybody else. >> north korea has the 99%. everybody seems to turn out. >> regardless of whether the lights or off or not. >> another call today from deutsche bank saying that there's a rally if obama wins and a rally if romney wins going into year end. depends if you look at 1450 or 1500. >> some have said there's a bond market rally for one and stock market rally for other. bond market for obama. easy money so to speak continuing. one of the key questions people come back to is it possible if romney wins and replace him prior to that in some fashion. what we can expect. we'll sit here tomorrow and know who the president is. you talk about uncertainty. that would be a blow if we sit here tomorrow and don

to "squawk box" this morning, the race in the battleground state of florida lived up to its billing. that presidential contest is still too close to call. but mary thompson is there. and maybe she's not going to call it for us, but can give us more information on where we are. mary? >> reporter: no, i'm not going to call it, andrew. might not be until this afternoon or possibly 9 to 12 days from now before we know the outcome of the florida vote here. the vote count was called off late last night. miami-dade, which is one of the most populous counties here in florida said it would continue the vote count today. hanging in the balance, 29 electoral votes. but, again, at this point may make little difference. this is where we stand as far as the vote count goes with president obama showing a slight lead over governor romney according to the florida division of elections. now, even if the final results are submitted today, if there is a margin of victory of less than .5%, here in florida, that triggers an automatic vote recount. that has to be completed either after nine days after the
latino areas that did not get polled including florida and just saying one party figured it out. the other party didn't. >> if you look at individual stocks and sectors, yesterday you got at the point where you go by sector and not risk on, risk off broader mark. we see that here. financials are seeing softness in pre-market. coal stocks seeing softness. there is a notion that now there will be more reimbursement for patients who previously couldn't pay for their care and so that will be a huge tail wind for these stocks which goes to buy from neutral this morning. >> a couple guys piled on hca. i do feel that you're supposed to sell the medical devices because there's a tax on them. things are playing out the way we would expect. i do think that the market is not understanding the power of what bernanke is doing in housing because you would get the firing of bernanke very quickly, okay, and you're not going to get that now. he's obviously contributed. the rates are down any way. i just think that if you bought bank of america because you thought romney was going to win and that

swamped. >> you remember hurricane andrew which flattened homestead down in florida. there were parts of new jersey and long island that look like that. >> not nearly the size -- houses down there were $150,000 a piece. the homes that were destroyed up here were millions of dollars a piece. >> that's what i'm saying. it's much more money. >> the other difference is in new york there's not a lot of moral hazard that you worry about in the sense of people weren't building homes in the wrong places. >> a terrific comment. there had not been a storm there in decades and decades and decades. it's another thing in florida on the coast. there were counties i found along north carolina that have fema money on top of fema money from the prior storm on top of fema money. that's not the case in new york. >> three storms hit new york in 1954. all of them twice as big as the one that just hit three in one year. >> i don't want to give you a nodule but people are making a leap with global warming thing. it may be true. i don't think there's evidence of it. >> i tell you, it's our living in sin that
-47. look at the state of florida. one that mitt romney is counting on as a lynchpin of the base. 29 electoral votes. president obama up among likely voters 49-47. in ohio, the state most look at as the potential tipping point. president obama has a six-point lead. he's gone hard on the auto bailout and hitting mitt romney. that's a point of contention. because ohio has been such a tough nut for the romney campaign to crack, that's a reason they are making a late play into pennsylvania. it depends on turnout organization, especially the composition of the electorate. what portion of white voters versus hispanics. definitely a lower level of intensity and young people. barack obama dominates among young people. mitt romney among seniors who are more motivated to vote. how much will that carry the day? we'll find out tomorrow. >> if you're looking for an early tell tomorrow, if you could only look at one state early on, virginia. if it's decisive either way does that suggest the rest of the night collapses in that direction? >> almost in any of the battleground states other than ohio w

whether on the gulf coast, florida and unfortunately in the metropolitan area in new york. the supply siders are doing everything they know how to do. so you broaden utility crews from across the country, trying to get electricity restored, the oil companies are doing everything they can do within the limits of safety, and regulation to get supply out to the public. we also have to do something different on the demand management side. what's happening is that the demand side is descending into chaos and you see it in the gas lines. this could get to gunfire if it continues in the way it's going now. my recommendation is for the governors of new jersey, new york and connecticut, come together, go to an odd/even rationing plan, cut the demand in half every day by going to odd/even rationing. >> based on your driver's license or based on the -- >> based on the license plate. >> like we did back in the '70s. >> exactly. so you've cut the demand in half by definition of what numbers on your car license plate. take care of the service providers, taxi cabs, i will mow drivers, other service
state can't pull gdp up after pushing it down. what we saw in 1992 in florida with andrew was that it did pull up the gdp. the rebuild did. this is a similar rebuild although there will be tremendous tension. those of house have property down there who submitted our bills to the insurance companies, how much of it was water damage? well, a lot of it. nice to know you. it's good. i hope you don't have mold down there. >> if it got flooded, you should hope a tree fell on top. >> the insurance companies are telling you to read fine print. fine print is very bad. >> when we come back, taking a bite out of apple in bear territory after a slight gain on friday and stock up in premarket. is it finally the time to buy? you might remember david shulman now with ucla forecast. he says why you should brace. nice rallies given that dow in the past four of six weeks have been down more than 200 points. more "squawk on the street" is back in a minute. >> take a look where we are set to open here up 112 points on the dow jones industrial average. a little bit of optimism this morning as
